A link to themoderntraveler.com must appear with any such content. 

Terms of Use

The Modern Traveler is for entertainment and information only. Reader agrees to consume information at their own risk with no guarantees from author. Read this website only if you agree to terms.

I reserve the right to change terms and conditions at any time. Even though I work very hard to provide you with current information through personal experience and research, I make no guarantees of any kind (expressed or implied) about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability of any information, products, services or related content on The Modern Traveler for any purpose. Please double check any travel information before embarking on your own journey to make sure everything is up to date and as expected.

While I aim to provide you with accurate information at the time of publishing, some information will understandably be less accurate as time passes. Should you find any inaccurate information, please let me know so that I can correct it. Any opinions expressed by third parties via comments or guest posts are their own and do not represent the opinions of this website.

Hold Harmless

All the information provided on themoderntraveler.com is for general information and entertainment purposes only and is my own opinion. You are consuming all information at your own risk. Under no circumstances will I be liable for any loss or damage (including without limitation indirect or consequential loss or damage) or any loss or damage whatsoever arising in connection with the use of this website.

Although I try to keep themoderntraveler.com running 24 hours a day, every day, access to the site may be temporarily or permanently suspended without notice at my own discretion, due to possible updates or technical issues beyond my control. I will not be liable if for any reason if the website is unavailable for any period of time.

Privacy Statement

Any personal and/or contact information provided to me will be kept private. You will not be spammed in any way and I will not sell or disclose your information to any other companies. I am not responsible for the privacy practices of any of my advertisers or blog commenters.

Reserve Rights

I reserve the right to change the focus of the blog, shut it down, sell it, or change the terms of use at my own discretion. I also reserve the rights to edit or delete any comments submitted to themoderntraveler.com at my discretion.

Advertisers and Sponsors

I am not responsible for the actions of my advertisers or sponsors. If you purchase a product or service based upon a link from my website, you must take action with that company to resolve any issues. Any product, claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer, provider or party in question.

This website accepts forms of cash advertising, sponsorship, paid insertions or other forms of compensation. Any sponsored content will be identified as such. Opinions are honest and sincere regardless of any compensation. I often (though not always) stay at hotels as a guest of that hotel or local CVB which is industry standard. This also applies to restaurants, various activities and products pertaining to travel. I will let you know when I am a guest. Regardless, my content is an honest evaluation and my real opinion. I am also an avid points collector and able to fund much of my travel for free–through points currency. I will not write favorably about anything if that is not what I believe. If I wouldn’t recommend something to my friend, I won’t recommend it to my readers. Note that I am enthusiastic and passionate by nature and beautiful design elements make me absolutely giddy (so does good food). If I gush and seem very excited, it’s because I am, not because I was comped or paid.  All reviews on my website are presented honestly. I read travel blogs too and value an honest opinion. I focus on positive experiences and what I think will be most useful or entertaining. If I didn’t like something (or love it), you will not see it here.

Letters to the Editor

Any letters, e-mails, blog comments, responses on Social Media platforms Instagram and Twitter, or questions written directly to me may be used to share with my blogging audience unless specifically requested otherwise. Portions of these letters or emails, questions or any other feedback may be used in newsletters, blog posts, columns or books.

Images

I use my own images unless otherwise stated. If on oversight, I inadvertently use your image—notify me and I will either take it down immediately or provide image credit. I prefer to use my own images because they usually reflect my own point of view the best, though sometimes it is necessary to use other images which I do with permission or via creative commons.
